Trash & Recycling Rates

The City contracts with Waste Management (WM) for all collection services (trash/recycling/brush/bulk) and WM has an exclusive right to provide these services in Cedar Hill.

Residential rates are $17.02/month for account holders under 65 years old. For those 65 and older, the rate is $13.18/month. This rate includes weekly trash, recycling and bulk collection, and monthly brush collection. To apply for the senior discount, print and complete the Senior Trash/Recycle Application. The completed form along with a copy of the account holder/applicant’s driver’s license can be dropped off, mailed to 285 Uptown Boulevard, Cedar Hill TX 75104, Attn: Utility Services Department, or attached to an email to Utility Services. Once the application and identification are received and approved by the City, the discount will be applied to the account effective on the date of approval.

Trash and recycling are collected weekly, on the same day. Review the collection day map. Trash and recycling should be set out by 7 a.m. on collection day. You may set carts out after 6 p.m. or one hour before sunset, whichever is earlier, on the evening before collection. Only Waste Management carts are serviced. Any other containers will not be serviced.
